When life gets tough we sometimes feel we have to run away.
We look at things much differently with every passing day.
It seems much too complicated to stay and go the course.
We submit to selfish thinking, we give up to remorse.

This force can pull us far away. It steals us from all hope,
It leads us to a web of fear where we can’t start to cope.
It lures us in – devours us – and spits us out again –
It doesn’t care about us when our souls it might obtain.

To fight these difficult feelings which leave us all alone,
We have to change these hearts of ours, that now have turned to stone.
“Come follow me,” our Savior says, “come walk with me today.”
“I’ll take your hand and lead you home, I’ll help you to find your way.”

You can’t escape the woes of life ’til death is at your door,
But when you trust in Jesus, Christ, He’ll give you so much more.
Stop running from the Prince of Peace, instead run to His arms.
He’s waiting patiently to help and rid you of life’s charms.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
